MediCare Gets Double Award!

30/01/2018

On the 27th January 2018, Northern Ireland Community Pharmacy paid tribute to the professionals for their hard work and dedication during the Pharmacy In Focus Awards 2018. Now in their eleventh year, the awards, which this year was held at Titanic Belfast, once again showcased the fantastic range of projects, which reflect the contribution that local community pharmacy makes to Northern Ireland healthcare on a daily basis.
 
MediCare Pharmacy Group walked away with two awards on the night:
Rebecca (Belfast Relief Manager) won the very competitive award for Health Promotion Pharmacist of the Year. Rebecca delivered a health promotion project with local charity Brain Injury Matters designed to help raise the awareness of service users with common health issues affecting them specifically but also carers and the wider community.
 
Anna (Manager Newcastle) scooped the prestigious Pharmacist of the Year Award as a result of her pioneering work in her local community and with local GPs. Anna is an MUR champion and has found new ways to link our services with GP practices and other community groups. Congratulations also to the staff in Newcastle who have helped and supported Anna in order to deliver the results she has achieved.
Michael Guerin, Managing Director of MediCare Pharmacy Group, said:
"We are delighted - This is a fantastic honour as there is so much work being carried out in community pharmacy in Northern Ireland at the moment and we are constantly striving to enhance the care we provide to the community. These awards are a tremendous accolade for our staff and the community we serve.”
The Pharmacy in Focus Awards provides an opportunity each year for members of the profession, representatives from the industry and members of pharmacy’s professional bodies to celebrate the amazing initiatives and projects, which have been designed to improve healthcare in general and patient outcomes in particular. They continue to celebrate and acknowledge successful individuals and teams within the pharmacy profession whilst encouraging ambitious forward-thinkers.
